Pretty much from the day they first joined forces and decided to start a multi-culti kid collective that will one day rule Hollywood with an iron fist, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been the subject of constant breakup rumors.
Ironically, the reports of trouble in Brangelina Land have only become more frequent since Pitt and Jolie got married in 2014.
The latest nonsense comes from Star magazine, who claims that Angelina is pissed – pissed! – about rumors that Brad has been hooking up with Selena Gomez.
“She’s insane with jealousy over the Selena rumors," an insider tells the tabloid.
The story is complete and utter BS, but at least it’s kinda, sorta, almost rooted in reality, as Brad and Selena have been spending an unusual amount of time together lately.
By which we mean more time than you would expect a 23-year-old single woman and a 52-year-old father of 47 to spend together.
The reason, of course, is that Brad and Selena both appear in The Big Short, which is currently nominated for five Oscars, thus requiring Brad and Selena to appear at many of the same events.
It may seem strange that Selena plays herself in a film about the 2008 housing crisis, but if you haven’t seen it, trust us, you haven’t lived until you’ve seen Ms. Gomez explain collateralized debt obligations.
Nefarious Wall Street mumbo-jumbo never sounded so sexy.
Anyway, the fact that the Selena rumors come on the heels of reports about Brad and Angelina fighting while on vacation has many believing that it’ll soon be Splitsville for the Jolie-Pitts.
We can’t say for certain that they’re not having problems, but trust us – Brad would be more likely to adopt Selena than to sleep with her.
